Recent games

I found a guy on Craigslist who was/is selling new (sealed) PS3 games for 35 bucks a piece. Must have fallen from a truck, no doubt, but who cares?! Got Gran Turismo 5 and Need for speed - Hot Pursuit from him.
Then, a couple of days later, a guy was selling Mass Effect 2 for 40 $ (new & sealed).
I had planned to get all those games eventually, but wanted to wait until prices had dropped. Little did I know that I'd be able to get them shortly after their launch at those fantastic prices. Craigslist rules for these kinds of things.

After a long, long time, I finally FINISHED a couple of games: Heavy Rain and Bionic Commando: Rearmed. I only saw one ending of Heavy Rain, I'll get back to it later to try and see some of the other endings. It's definitely more of an interactive movie rather than a traditional game. But taking it for what it is, I enjoyed it. BCR was great fun and since I finished it just a couple of days after its sequel came out on PSN, I bought BCR2 right away.

I played Dead Nation a lot in January and am loving it. I eventually got stuck at the cemetary (if you've played the game you probably know which spot I'm talking about) and died over and over again. Lost my motivation for now, I'll get back to it at some point, when I feel like it.
I'd like to try it in co-op mode too, but I have no one to play it with. (Tried it with my friend in Dakar, but it's too laggy)

I dug Demon's Souls out from the shelf and played it for a couple of hours, having only played the tutorial many months ago). The game is incredible. It's old-school, hard as fuck, addicting and beautiful. And I haven't even finished world 1-1! Its successor, Dark Souls, is already in the making.
